MTV Reportedly Offered to Pay for Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola’s Wedding to Ex-Fiancé Christian Biscardi if She Allowed the Event to Be Filmed for TV

“Maybe you guys can film Rahn’s first wedding instead?”

Prior to splitting with her fiancé Christian Biscardi, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola reportedly turned down a sweet deal from MTV, showing just how committed she is to living a more private life away from reality TV. 

After the former Jersey Shore star announced her engagement in March 2019, MTV approached her, “offering to pay for her entire wedding if she filmed it,” a source told In Touch Weekly.

“She passed on this offer since she doesn’t want to be involved with ‘Jersey Shore’ and has moved on,” the source added. “She isn’t after fame and money anymore.” 

As ‘Jersey Shore’ fans may recall, when the cast lineup for Jersey Shore Family Vacation was announced in 2017, Sammi was noticeably absent, presumably because she did not want to film with her ex-boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, given the pair’s tumultuous past.

When “the sweetest b*tch you’ll ever meet” turns out to be the “smartest b*tch” as well.

The following year, however, Sammi revealed that she decided not to participate in the show in order to focus on her “businesses and relationship” instead. She and Christian got engaged in 2019 and were planning for a wedding in Spring 2020 when the pandemic forced them to postponed their nuptials to September 2020.

At the time of the postponement, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese– a trio known for their questionable wedding behavior– said they hadn’t received invites to Sammi’s wedding and probably wouldn’t, as they had “drifted apart” from their former roomie. 

“Your loss, Sammi… we had some good roast jokes ready for ya!”

After months of speculation, Sammi confirmed her split from Christian just weeks ago on TikTok, assuring fans she was both single and happy.

News of MTV’s alleged offer to fund the Giancola-Biscardi nuptials in exchange for filming privileges comes just months after Jordan Wiseley of The Challenge claimed the network had attempted to plan a wedding series featuring himself and then-fiancé Tori Deal, as well as other couples from the MTV franchise. 

“MTV and Bunim-Murray started talking about a wedding, and started bringing us in and really pitching it,” he said. “There were talks about building a show around [the wedding]. There were talks about building a show surrounding three or four weddings that were coming up–– Zach [Nichols] and Jenna [Compono] tied the knot recently and they’re having a baby. There was a lot.” 

While a Sammi Sweetheart wedding special won’t be coming to MTV, the network may be able to work something out with Jenni, as she announced her engagement to boyfriend Zack Clayton Carpinello in March. 

Sammi’s ex/former Shore House sparring partner Ronnie is engaged as well– to Saffire Matos, his partner of less than a year. However, Ronnie revealed in May that he was stepping away from the ‘Shore’ life to seek medical treatment for mental health issues, so plans to film the couple’s fist-pump down the aisle are likely on an indefinite hold.

  1. Good for her. She knows what she wants and she controls her life and what she wants “out there”. She knows what MTV would do.

  2. Ronnie and Sammie are going to get back together, it is just meant to be. That kind of love happens once in a life time. Bye bye Saffa bear.

    stay lit

    1. Nibs, I agree that they probably won’t feel that level of passion again, but there’s a window that sometimes closes due to time and circumstance. I doubt insecure and emotionally manipulative Sammie (the neediest bitch you’ll ever meet) would ever get over Ron having a kid with someone else.

  3. good for her because after angelina’s wedding, u know mtv would’ve stirred up drama and have ronnie show up

  4. Good for her for not succumbing to the fame and money thing again.

    I’m sure its hard to turn down the money, but she would definitely earn it in sleepless nights, online harassment, anxiety, depression, invasion of privacy..
